    Need to get a Meyer mount and frame for a new 08 GMC 1500, with plow prep package.
    Will take new or used.
    Thanks,
    Bob

    EZ-Plus/MDll or express series mount Bob?

    Not sure. I think it's EZ mount classic, with the truck side mount that stays in place and the lift frame that's tubular and slides in and out.
    That's what I have on my 01, and would prefer, as I plan not to use but want the ability in case of emergency.
    Thanks

    Unfortunately Bob you won't find an EZ-Classic mount for the new body 1500's because Meyer doesn't make one for that application. You'd have to use an EZ-Plus series mount as that's the only one available.

    I'll take a look tomorrow to see for sure...but I don't believe so.

    If I understand the Plus mount system correctly, the blade/pump/lift frame all disconnect as one whole unit. Therefore, I could not hook another blade and A sector to the mount, correct?
    My intent was to have just the mount and frame, so I could hook-up to another blade when one truck goes down, as all trucks are Meyer with same A sector.
    It sounds like that is not possible with this truck.

    Thats correct. In fact, none of your current EZ-classic plows will even work with the EX-Plus series mounting unless you also change all the A-frames over to the EZ-Plus style. Which of course them means you'll have to also change all the truck mounts over to EZ-Plus.

    It's your only choice if you want to plow with the '08 and still have all the trucks and blades interchange.

    On a 2500/3500 it will, which is what your mount p/n is for...not even close for a 1500 of any year.
